Краткое описание

Kingdom Under Glass: A Tale of Obsession, Adventure, and One Man's Quest to Preserve the World's Great Animals.

In his account of an extraordinary life lived during remarkable times, Jay Kirk follows the adventures of explorer and taxidermist Carl Akeley, who revolutionized both his craft and the practice of environmental conservation, and created the famed African Hall at New York's Museum of Natural History. Akeley frequently risked death in the jungles of Africa as he stalked animals for his dioramas, and hobnobbed with such outsized personalities as Theodore Roosevelt and P.T. Barnum. "A rollicking biography of Carl Akeley, an American taxidermist who preserved realistic-looking beasts complete with aura of 'will,' for 20th-century natural history museums.... A talented literary taxidermist, Kirk spruces up the story's anatomy with dramatic 'inferences'—imagined scenes and imputed streams of consciousness—and heroic cameos including a memorable turn by Akeley's safari companion, Theodore Roosevelt. The result is a beguiling, novelistic portrait of a man and an era straining to hear the call of the wild."—Publishers Weekly
